Libraries

Check the collection of A Cup of English first. Then, make friends with your local library. In all libraries in Bilbao you can find books in English starting from simplified, graded classics to novels originally written in English. Alhóndiga has probably the biggest and most attractive choice. Remember that your reader's card is valid in all public libraries in Euskadi.
